Veblen's previous thread about 6/27/69 and Dewd's responding post within that thread where he mentions Bob singing Dire Wolf got me wondering about other instances in which Bob sang what were traditionally considered to be Jerry songs and vice versa.

I suppose even Phil could be entered into the equation as well.

Do any other shows come to mind where things as such occurred?

This is MOST unusual...Bobby singing the classic "I wish I was a headlight" line from "I Know You Rider.":

There's a few examples of Rider where Bob sings the whole song, I think all prior to Euro72. It's kind of weir-d.

Don't forget the Compton Terrace show in '80 where Jerry and Bob trade verses in I Know You Rider!!

In the few versions of Long Black Limousine Bobby handled the vocals except on the "bust" show of 1/31/70 where Jerry takes a verse by himself.

The early versions of On The Road Again were sung by Jerry rather than Bob.

Jer sings most of the leads on Good Lovin' at this terrific 1969 Family Dog show...

Good Lovin' must hold the Grateful Dead record for changing lead singers. I believe it was Jerry who began singing it in the earliest versions in '66, Pigpen took it over in '69/'70, and Bobby revived it yet again in 1976 for the duration.
